In bead quilling--instead of thin strips of paper--thin strips of beads, made with square stitch, are wrapped to form circles, scrolls, and squares. The holes of the beads, rather than the sides, are exposed, to become part of the distinctive design.

She also incorporates crystals, pearls, and decorative threads into the pieces to add interest and texture.
